Abstract: A semiparametric varying-coefficient partially linear transformation model is proposed for the analysis of interval-censored failure time data and develop corresponding efficient estimation procedures. The asymptotic properties of the proposed estimators are established. Simulation studies are conducted to evaluate the proposed methods and compare them with the existing methods. Real data involving interval censoring are analyzed to illustrate the applications of the proposed methods.
